Trump: ‘No,’ I Didn’t Ask Comey for a Pledge of Loyalty, Hints There Might Be Tapes

‘It wouldn’t be wrong if I did say that but I didn’t say that’
By Grabien Staff


TRUMP: “Look at those hands up there, president? Do you have this in Romania too? I don’t know. [crosstalk] If I could only — if I could only sell that. If I could only sell it. Who would like to ask? Should I take one of the killer networks that treat me so badly as fake news? Should I do that? [crosstalk] Go ahead, Jon. Be fair, Jon.”
KARL: “Oh, absolutely.”
TRUMP: “Remember how nice you used to be before I ran. Such a nice man.”
KARL: “Always fair. Mr. President, I want to go back to James Comey’s testimony. You suggested he didn’t tell the truth in everything he said. He did say under oath that you told him to let the Flynn — you said you hoped the Flynn investigation you could let — he could let go.“ 
TRUMP: “I didn’t say that.” 
KARL: “So he lied about that?” 
TRUMP: “Well, I didn’t say that. I mean, I will tell you I didn’t say that.” 
KARL: “And — and did he asked you to pledge his loyalty —“
TRUMP: “And it wouldn’t be wrong if I did say and according to everybody that I’ve read today. But, I did not say that.”
KARL: “And — and did he ask for a pledge of loyalty from you? That’s another thing he said.“ 
TRUMP: “No, he did not.”
KARL: “So he said those things under oath. Would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of — of incidents?“
TRUMP: “One hundred percent. I didn’t say under oath. I hardly know the man. I’m not going to say, ‘I want you to pledge allegiance.’ Who would do that? Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath? I mean, think about it. I hardly know the man. It doesn’t make sense. No, I didn’t say that and I didn’t say the other?”
